Less than a day after a Saudi airman shot and killed three members of the U.S. military at the Pensacola Naval Air Station, a cyberattack has forced the Florida city to shut down many of its systems, with the mayor declining to confirm or deny whether a ransom demand accompanied the attack.“The City of Pensacola has experienced a cyber incident, and we have disconnected much of our city network until the issue can be resolved,” the city wrote in an alert on its website as well as a statement posted to Facebook.“I can confirm the city of Pensacola has experienced a cyberattack and we’ve disconnected much of our city’s network until the issue can be resolved,” city spokeswoman Kaycee Lagarde said in a statement. “As a precaution we have reported the incident to the federal government.”
